NANOTECH

NANOTECH

Anyone who's wandered New York's East Village – or any urban drinking playground – after a busy night knows the stench of urine. Male revelers make impromptu latrines of nearby walls and dumpsters. Convenient,...

Old stereo towers were clunky behemoths with iron magnets moving a paper cone to create sound in air. Then came neodymium – powerful rare earth permanent magnets updated the same principle at a fraction...

Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and FOM Foundation today present a very promising prototype of this in the journal Nature Communications. The material gallium phosphide enables their solar cell to produce the...

Wearable electronic devices for health and fitness monitoring are a rapidly growing area of consumer electronics; one of their biggest limitations is the capacity of their tiny batteries to deliver enough power to transmit...

Nano this, nano that. The transformative impact of nanomaterial based devices, long promised, just happened. Enter Nano-RAM or NRAM (non-volatile random access memory) for short. More than a dozen corporate customers are lined up for first...

HELMHOLTZ ZENTRUM MÜNCHEN - GERMAN RESEARCH CENTER FOR ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH Nanoparticles are the smallest particles capable of reaching virtually all parts of the body. Researchers use various approaches to test ways in which nanoparticles could...

Scientists have successfully been able to transfer the experience from furnace to laboratory while synthesizing nanoscale materials using simple and highly efficient flame technology. This "baking" of nanostructures has already been a great success...

Missouri University of Science and Technology - Researchers are giving new meaning to the term "read the fine print" with their demonstration of a color printing process using nanomaterials. In this case, the print...

Utah Engineers take a step toward Silicon Phototonic Computing at Speeds Millions of Times Faster than Current Machines University of Utah engineers have taken a step forward in creating the next generation of computers and...

Aalto University's researchers improved their previous record by over 3 absolute percents in cooperation with Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya AALTO UNIVERSITY: The researchers from Finland's Aalto University and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya have obtained the...

CREDIT: NEW YORK UNIVERSITY POLYTECHNIC SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING BROOKLYN, New York -- Researchers have demonstrated a new metal matrix composite that is so light that it can float on water. A boat made of such...

Not a breakthrough-less day goes by for carbon nanotubes. The pace of techno-evolution is matched only by the astounding timeliness of applications that seem to magically appear in answer to the thorniest human problems. A...
